Young students in Luna, La Union took to the streets on Thursday, March 28, to oppose the construction of a coal-fired power plant in their town.
Clad in their school uniforms, the students brought different banners calling to “Save Luna” from the harmful environmental effects of the coal-fired power plant.
“No to coal!” the students chanted.
The students are protesting the coal-fired power plant that Global Luzon Energy Development Corporation plans to build in Luna.
Residents and environmentalists alike have long been opposing the construction of the power plant and are seeking for the passage of an ordinance declaring their town coal-free.
Politikos from neighboring San Juan already passed Resolution No. 03-2019, which declared their town as environment-friendly and free from coal. The San Juan municipal council unanimously voted in favor of the ordinance authored by Councilor Miguel “Migz” Magsaysay.
